Sheriff's Office investigates following early morning Jan. 5 officer-involved shooting on SE Rupert Drive; one deceased (Photo) - 01/08/19

UPDATE: The involved deputies are Deputy Scott Krause and Deputy Trevor Wolf.  Deputy Krause has been employed at the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office since February 2016 and Deputy Wolf has been employed at the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office since June 2017.  

The investigation is continuing and anyone with information is urged to call investigators on the CCSO Tip Line at (503) 723-4949.




At approximately 3:10 a.m. on Saturday January 5, 2019, a Clackamas County Sheriff's Office deputy located an occupied vehicle parked along a short roadway that leads to Oak Grove Methodist Church ( 14700 SE Rupert Dr.).

The deputy contacted the vehicle's lone occupant, David John Engebretson, 50, of Milwaukie.

Mr. Engebretson had a valid warrant for his arrest and refused to exit the vehicle. The deputy called for a cover unit.

A short time later, a second deputy arrived and one of the deputies radioed "shots fired."

There had been an exchange of gunfire between the two deputies and Mr. Engebretson. Mr. Engebretson died as a result of a gunshot wound. The deputies were uninjured in the exchange.

The Clackamas County Major Crimes Team responded to the scene to gather forensic evidence and conduct an investigation.

An autopsy by the Oregon State Medical Examiner has been completed, and family notifications are complete.

Photos from the scene are attached.

Both of the involved deputies have been placed on paid administrative leave while detectives investigate the incident, per standard procedure in an officer-involved shooting. The investigation of the incident is ongoing.
